JAKARTA - Indonesian police have warned of possible attacks on commemorations for the tenth anniversary of bomb blasts on the island of Bali and have brought in reinforcements to protect the thousands due to attend, including Australia's prime minister.

The 2002 attacks on nightclubs in Bali's tourist district killed 202 people. The blasts were a watershed for Indonesia, which has the world's largest Muslim population, forcing the secular state to confront the presence of violent Islamists.

Indonesia has been largely successful in containing militancy and there have been no big attacks on Western targets since 2009, when suicide bombers attacked two hotels in the capital, Jakarta, killing nine people and wounding 53.
